    Well to be honest I got a tickle out of a commercial I saw for the first time last night... it was a Jack Daniels commercial... not for their coolers but for the hard stuff.

    What tickled me was the tagline at the end... "Remember To Enjoy Responsibly"

    Alright... who amoung us has ever broken out the Jack with the intention of being responsible??

    When ever I use to drink the stuff my only goal was to wake up indoors... didn't even have to be at my house... just not in the driveway or in the bushes.

          Yes, they're girls.

          Funny how all they can talk about is boys.

            I loved the Havoline commercial with Mario, A.J., and Nigel Mansell:

            Mansell: Why do you go anti-clockwise?
            Foyt: You're in a foreign country, boy!



            Also the one with Mario and Robert Yates arguing about whether the driver or the engine was more important in winning a race.

                    there were two beer commercials that ran in the Northwest when I was going to college out that way in the early 70s.

                    The first was for Olympia Beer and their slogan was... "it's the water and alot more" and they had this one ad that showed firemen in Olympia Washinton reacting to an alarm... you see them slide down the pole jump onto their pumper truck and as it pulls out of the station the camera focusses in on the back of the truck where in script is says... "it's the water and alot more"

                    Then there was a commercial for Rainer Beer and you see Mt. Rainer from across a lake and it's at sunset and all you hear for the entire time of the ad is frogs going... "Ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near... ray-near..."

                    "Ooh woo, I'm a Rebel just for kicks, now
                    I been feeling it since 1966, now..."

                        Yes but you never saw the frogs you just heard them... this was back in the early 70s I said... bud didn't use frogs until after they used Lizards and that was when early 90s late 80s?

                          Don't ask me.

                          I'm still waiting for Spuds MacKenzie to make his (her) return.

                              This'll really date me...

                              I remember the old Vicks Formula 44 cough syrup commercials with the late Harold "Odd Job" Sakata--villian of the same name in "Goldfinger."

                              Everytime he'd get a super cough, he would Karate chop things up with his bare hands.

                              I also loved all the Doritos commercials with the late Avery Schreiber. "When people eat Doritos chips..." And when someone would bite into one, something bad always happened to Schreiber.
